Solved my problem

  • Summary: We live in an older house with those wonderful lath and plaster walls that are great on soundproofing and even better at stifling wireless signals. Our computer and router are upstairs and there was no appreciable signal downstairs. I saw an article in PC magazine on wireless range extenders and decided to give it a try. I first got the range extender kit, installing the range extender itself in the staircase which helped improve the signal significantly.

Great product but not as easy to install as Netgear would have us believe

  • Summary: The range extender works perfectly. The router - -a Linksys - - -is located on the second floor of the house. My room is located at the 1st floor but at a far corner. However, with the range extender, my signal is EXCELLENT! Previously, I only got a LOW or VERY LOW SIGNAL. Installing though is not too simple. After following the instructions, the range extender was detected by my computer but web pages would not load. It was very frustrating.

A good solution to wireless range extension

  • Summary: I use a wireless router in the house with great success. However, the range is pretty weak or my house is too big, and I am pretty sure it's not the latter. As a result, I researched a variety of solutions, none of which seemed too appealing to implement (bridges, wireless range extenders, new RF antenna, etc). It just all seemed too complicated, and I consider myself pretty tech savvy.

Das System überzeugt bei richtiger Einstellung

  • Excerpt: Ich arbeite als freier Netzwerkadmin, dabei hab ich ich schon einige Systeme gesehen und konfiguriert. Zu dem WGXB 102 Kit. Teure Kabel legen? Warum wenn man die Stromkabel der Umgebung nutzen kann! Das ist WGXB 102. Grundsetzlich ist das Konzept überzeugend, In vielen Gebäuden oder Wohnungen sind Leitung verlegen schrierig oder nicht erlaubt. Meist sind dicke Wände der Grund für schlechte Empfangsqualität des Wlan des richtigen Routers.
  • Pros: Bereichorientierter Accespoint, klein, portable
  • Cons: schwierig einzustellen, schlechte Anleitung

DATENSTROM....

  • Excerpt: Hallo erstmal! --Aussehen und Bauweise-- Die beiden Geräte sehen recht nett aus, die Grösse finde ich aber nicht ansprechend. Der Wireless Access Point steckt aufgrund seiner Dimension und Bauweise nicht optimal in der Steckdose, für meine Begriffe ist er zu wacklig. Immerhin verfügt der Wireless Access Point einen Reset-Schalter kaum sichtbar an der Unterseite, über den sich Einstellungen schnell auf die Werkseinstellung zurücksetzen lassen.
  • Pros: Kabellose Erweiterung eines Netzwerkes, Preis
  • Cons: Größe, "Einfache Installation", Haltbarkeit
